Example text

81 When Christie revised it she also changed its tone, so that it became less imitative and more distinctive. This part of the novel, however, in which the puzzle is solved for the reader, is arguably the most important, defining part. 82 It is not simply a case of answering the questions and tying the loose ends, but of presenting them in a way that is both intellectually and emotionally satisfying. In the published version, Christie keeps most dialogue, relocating it to a drawing room in Styles Court, where Poirot asks to “stage a little réunion” (Styles, 180), thereby altering the scene’s tone.

21 Christie actively flirted with the media, before health problems in 1926 rendered her suspicious of journalists: she gave numerous interviews, wrote for newspapers about current affairs and always kept the press clippings. 22 The cultivated image of a homely woman writer in a domestic sphere was instrumental in selling her books. Like her main detectives, Christie was marketed as a professional amateur. 24 Though almost oldfashioned by 1955, when Lane was writing, the image of the woman crime writer as primarily a middle-class “housewife” was common in the interwar period.
